Within the Cairngorm national park in amongst the Scots Pines and close to the river, Spey can be found this traditional stone-clad house. Set within its own 2.5 acres of grounds, this is a house that started life back in 1793, which has been added to over the years making it a large holiday house today, perfect for a group of activity minded friends or for a family holiday.
With plenty of space inside as well, with a sitting room, dining room, TV room and a games room with a pool table, allowing for plenty of space for the group to spread out. The kitchen also has a breakfast room for more casual suppers or staggered breakfasts. The seven bedrooms are all on the two floors above and include double rooms, twin rooms and a single bedroom. This is a great base for a holiday in the Aviemore and Strathspey area which has proved popular for many years for so many people.
In the traditional manor, the sitting room is to be found at the front of the house, which has an open fire, comfortable seating and a TV, with DVD and SKY. Beyond the entrance hall, there is a smaller secondary sitting room, which is ideal for children, which has a TV and DVD player.
To the side of the building, off the kitchen, is a sunroom where boots can be stored, and dogs kept. Located on the first floor are two further rooms for entertainment purposes. There is a room with a pool table (with two fold-out beds available) and another smaller room with a ¾ size table tennis table.
The dining room is located off the entrance hall opposite the sitting room and is a bright room to the front of the house with a bay window, seating up to 12 people in comfort and style. To the rear of the house is the large kitchen and with a professional range-master cooker and two fridge freezers, it is set-up nicely to cater for larger groups. There is space for a breakfast table which can seat 6/8 people. Additionally, there is a utility room off the kitchen, with a washing machine and tumble dryer. A side door from the sunroom allows easy access to the kitchen, without having to traipse through the rest of the house.
Accessed off a quiet road, the drive takes you up to the house which is set in 2.5 acres of private grounds. Mainly set out in the grass, with a combination of lawn and meadow, surrounded by woodlands. A BBQ and garden furniture are available in the summer months. You'll see lots of wildlife around depending on the time of year you visit from Roe deer to highlands cows and pine martin, as well as all sorts of birds including geese on the pond 100 metres from the house.
